It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Joseph Heard, host of Science 2.0. The show's tagline was "Science for the rest of us" and that's exactly what Joseph delivered. He could take topics normally considered too complex or boring by most and make them completely relatable and exciting. He was passionate about science and thought everyone else should be too. He was especially dedicated to igniting a spark in younger people for science. He saw too few people of color or from disadvantaged backgrounds in the sciences and he wanted to change that.

Joseph enjoyed doing his show and it was on display each week. He loved hip-hop and featured it during each break. He even had a hip-hop theme song made for the show. His sister, Heather, was his original co-host and they had a great dynamic together on air. It was a good show. He was a good man. We miss him dearly and offer our deepest condolences to the Heard family.
